Just a step away is the vast Kruger National Park and a number of luxurious private game lodges that hug its border. A habitat immensely rich in wildlife, this is one of the world’s finest game viewing areas with prolific resident species including lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant, cheetah and over 500 species of birds.
Further south, the Cape coast and the dramatic scenery of mist-capped mountains, swathes of sandy beaches and an explosion of botanical colour make the Garden Route a truly classic drive.
Squeezed between narrow valley walls and nestling at the foot of rugged mountain cliffs lie the historic Cape Dutch houses of South Africa’s finest vineyards whilst isolated at the southern tip of Africa and dominated by the sheer cliffs of Table Mountain … the glorious city of Cape Town. Founded as a station for the maritime explorers of bygone centuries to stock up with bountiful supplies and shelter from the infamous storms, Cape Town is without doubt one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
